Zucchini & Pesto Rice Cakes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kiwi Kathy

If you like pesto these little darlings will make you go, "Wow". They tickle the tastebuds delightfully. Boil the rice in the morning so that it is cold and ready to go at meal time. These make a great vegetarian dinner. Recipe from the October 2009 edition of Recipes+

Top Review by Baby Kato

I enjoyed these tasty little gems very much Kathy. I served them for lunch with fresh lemon slices and a sprinkling of freshly ground sea salt, they were terrific, loved the flavor. I found them quick and easy to make. Used green and yellow zucchini, fresh italian bread, parmesano regganio and a good quality basil pesto sauce. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
